That's more of parenting than rap music.I like club bangers as much as the next guy and summer jams. But can understand how the artist words can go to effect someone. Shoot I already posted what I thought to be "classic" albums. I just can't sit around and listen to them everyday. Some days I just want to listen to ignorance ****
Eminem and Action Bronson talk about wild things I'll never do. Just comes down to how open your mind is and what influence you/that person.
No. It's not a parenting thing, it's more of being a product of your environment thing. Like I said if you read my posts nobody wants to listen to conscious rap in the club including myself. I'm just saying the topics that are being put out on these songs are part of he problem. IDC if they aren't lyrical. Its just a record for the clubs, car and gym. How come pop music, country music, rock, and jazz doesn't include lyrics of throwing your money away, killing each other, dropping racks in the club etc. They're even getting our R&B slowly. R&B is done. You got Usher putting out songs about Not minding if the girl dances on the pole it doesn't make her a ho. Great! I'm pretty sure hundreds of girls instantly thought of becoming a stripper after that song.
I'm in love with the CoCo... c'mon man... C'mon... Just let one Pop artist drop a song talking about being in love with cocaine.
Parenting and environment can still be the same problem depending on what view you are looking at. We are going in circles dude I said I dont want listen to Nas type song, you saying you dont want to listen to club hits all the time. I cant speak for others since I did not grow up in that type environment I used Em and Bam Bam as an example for their subject matter. Amy Winehouse talked about cocaine
But touche dude lets get back to talking about how great Cole is being towards hip hop at the end of the year. Hopefully this can be a wake up call for Lupe!
